The most important part of a building is the foundation upon which everything else rests. For the South's greatest construction, chicken and waffles, the same principle applies. Without a good waffle, the dish can just fall apart under scrutiny. Originally a Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles franchise, the Home of Chicken and Waffles understands that just because the waffle is a vessel for moist chicken and sticky syrup, doesn't mean it should take second billing. Thin but sturdy, the base can hold up against a piece of meat in weight and texture. Like a supporting actor who makes the headliner shine, the waffles in Jack London Square are wrongfully appreciated as an afterthought. While people may immediately point their knife and fork toward the fried skyscrapers, the deep pockets filled with syrup and hot sauce will not let them down in their silent unsung culinary duty.
